Summaries for CDH2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDH2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a classical cadherin and member of the cadherin superfamily. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, at least one of which encodes a preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a calcium-dependent cell adhesion molecule and glycoprotein. This protein plays a role in the establishment of left-right asymmetry, development of the nervous system and the formation of cartilage and bone. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for CDH2 Gene

CDH2 (Cadherin 2, Type 1, N-Cadherin (Neuronal)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH2 include pulmonary neuroendocrine tumor and spindle cell synovial sarcoma. Among its related pathways are Developmental Biology and PAK Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein phosphatase binding. An important paralog of this gene is CDH13.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH2 Gene

  • Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. Acts as a regulator of neural stem cells quiescence by mediating anchorage of neural stem cells to ependymocytes in the adult subependymal zone: upon cleavage by MMP24, CDH2-mediated anchorage is affected, leading to modulate neural stem cell quiescence. CDH2 may be involved in neuronal recognition mechanism. In hippocampal neurons, may regulate dendritic spine density (By similarity).

Post-translational modifications for CDH2 Gene

  • Cleaved by MMP24. Ectodomain cleavage leads to the generation of a soluble 90 kDa amino-terminal soluble fragment and a 45 kDa membrane-bound carboxy-terminal fragment 1 (CTF1), which is further cleaved by gamma-secretase into a 35 kDa. Cleavage in neural stem cells by MMP24 affects CDH2-mediated anchorage of neural stem cells to ependymocytes in the adult subependymal zone, leading to modulate neural stem cell quiescence (By similarity).
